Totally Hues #4

I hope you have all had a great weekend - mine was crazy again, but only three more weeks left till I get a week's break for the Easter Holidays - its been so hectic and can't wait to have a break and perhaps catch up on some much neglected Spring Cleaning!!!

I have a get well card to share that I made following Heather Pulvirenti's Totally Hues Challenge #4. Heather has a knack for picking gorgeous colour combinations and I finally had time to join in!
For this challenge, the only colour I was missing was Raspberry Fizz so I went with my next closest colour which was Stampin Up's Melon Mambo.
The white panel was run through my Cuttlebug with my Bloom Dots embossing folder, only embossing one strip down the side. I then used my Quickie glue pen to add some glitter to the panel. The flowers were stamped using the Beautiful Blooms ll set (one of my all time faves!) in Plum Pudding, Melon Mambo and Lemon Zest ink. I still don't own the matching dies so I had to hand cut them all, and then layered them with dimensionals. The leaves were die cut using my Sizzix Little Leaves die cut and New Leaf cardstock. To assemble the front, I wrapped around my white panel some Lemon Zest ribbon and added the layer to my Lemon Zest card base. The Thinking of You sentiment was stamped in Plum Pudding ink using my Up, Up and Away set. I bent the stamp to create a wave instead of stamping it straight.
The inside sentiment is from Stampin Up's Thoughts and Prayers set and stamped in Plum Pudding ink. I ran the white layer through my Cuttlebug again with my Bloom Dots die, again adding some glitter. I then cut a thin strip of New Leaft cardstock and added this along with some blooms stamped in Plum Pudding ink. Silver rhinestones were added to all of my flowers both inside and out.

I will definately be joining in more of these wonderful challenges - check it out - the colour combos are awesome!!
